THE JAVANESE WEDDING
This is a letter and photo we recently received from a reader:
Dear Zawaj.com, Assalamu alaykum,
I want to share our wedding customs with the whole world. This
is the wedding custom from Sundanis, West Java, which is one
of the provinces of Indonesia. Indonesia actually has a tremendous
variety of wedding customs because it encompasses so many islands,
peoples and cultures.
In West Java we use a lot of jasmine for our acessories and
the bride wears a crown of jasmine in her hair. This crown is
called a siger. Here is a photo of me wearing a siger.
Thank you and I hope you can put our wedding customs in your
